HP updates ZBook mobile workstation lineup with new Fury and Power G7 models equipped with Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake-H and Xeon CPUs
HP is updating its mobile workstation lineup with thinner and slimmer models. Additionally, HP is now offering a tiered approach suited for a wider variety of budgets. For the more budget-oriented users, HP is introducing the Power G7 workstations that only come in 15-inch variants, while the new Fury G7 models come in 15-inch and 17-inch variants, with expanded upgradability options.
The Power G7 laptops are touted as “the affordable beast,” and HP also markets these models as the true successors to the impressive ZBook 15v G5. Users can equip the Power G7 with up to an Nvidia Quadro T2000 professional GPU along with 10th gen Comet Lake-H Intel CPUs up to an 8-core i9-10885H with vPro or a 6-core Xeon W-10855M with vPro and up to 64 GB of RAM, plus up to 2 TB of M.2 SSDs. The chassis for this model is 19% slimmer and thinner compared to previous G6 laptops, and HP is also providing improved security features, with optional manageability features , ISV certifications and custom BIOS.
When it comes to uncompromised performance, the new Fury mobile workstations offer better specs with room for future upgrades via the toolless access design. The CPU options are the same from the Power model, but users can add up to 128 GB of RAM and up to 10 TB of M.2 SSD storage. Additionally, the GPU options also include professional models up to an Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000. HP also managed to reduce the size of the 15-inch chassis by 12% from previous G6 models, while the 17-inch Fury G7 is 29% smaller compared to previous gen workstations. Port selection includes 2x Thunderbolt 3 connectors as opposed to only one on the Power model.
Performance-wise, HP’s internal tests reveal that the new Fury G7 models powered by the Comet Lake-H CPUs are up to 3.76 times faster than an Apple MacBook Pro 16 and between 30-70% faster than previous HP ZBook G6 workstations. Additionally, HP has included bigger batteries, with the Power models getting an 83 Wh model, and the Fury workstations getting the larger 94 Wh variant.
One of the more impressive options for the Fury workstations is the advanced 4K displays that come with Pantone calibration and have impressive 100% DCI-P3 color gamuts and HDR 400 certification. These displays are also designed to prolong battery life by up to 2.5 times. As a bonus, HP also includes a miniDisplayPort on the left side.
